WhatsApp soon introduce a "double verification code" feature to improve account security. Before login into a WhatsApp account, the feature will provide an extra layer of protection. According to WhatsApp tracker WABetaInfo, the messaging app is working on this feature for a future release of WhatsApp beta for Android and iOS.
A screenshot of the function was also provided on the website. Users will require an additional verification code to log onto another device after it has been handed out. The messaging app is working on a feature that would secure users' accounts even if they are misled into providing their six-digit verification number by fraudsters.
"After the first successful attempt to get into a WhatsApp account, another 6-digit code is required to complete the process: in this instance, another message is sent to the owner of the phone number to notify them of an attempt to enter into their account," WABetaInfo noted.
The second verification code alerts users that someone else is attempting to access their WhatsApp account. The feature is currently in development, and a release date has yet to be determined.
For a future version, the messaging app is also working on the option to undo message deletion. Users will be able to recover deleted messages using this functionality. This functionality is also in the works. Once the capability is available, users may click "undo" to recover a deleted message. The message will be restored after a few seconds.
